Yesterday afternoon after lunch, the Black Star group went for rock climbing & learnt how to anchor. They are being challenged and are enjoying the stretch. The Red Star group did tree climbing. They had some free time & spent it playing cricket which they seem to be crazy about & spend every free minute playing! They were all ready for some silent time by the evening. Camp fun was mad ads which the kids thoroughly enjoyed.

Skies are clear & blue today. All the kids did an energetic chota hazari and had a hearty breakfast. Black Star went for another rock climbing session near the waterfall this time while Red star went for rappelling. The Red Star kids will be going for their turn at the nightout after lunch. They will apply the navigation skills they learnt to get to their campsite. At the campsite, they will get to use the camping & survival skills they have learnt and also their team bonding will be in play as they will be in charge of making the fire & cooking! It's Tree Hug day today and kids are making the trees feel loved while getting more oxygen into themselves!

The Black Star kids went to learn signalling & rescue techniques and post lunch they will pack their backpacks & head out for their nightout.

Y4 - Yercaud Day 2
Kids reached campus safe & sound at 1.15pm yesterday. They were welcomed by pleasant weather & a warm lunch. They had their lunch followed by camp briefing by the CC. Kids settled into their tents and found out who their tent mates were immediately after campus briefing. Kids played ice breaker games & then went in their respective groups for expectation sharing. In the evening, they did an activity called human table which they enjoyed. Lights out was early last night so that kids could rest & recover from their journey.

The kids woke up fresh to a sunny & slightly warm day. They energised with games & exercises and then got ready for their first activity. Kids had breakfast & then RR+ODS Black Star went for a hike where they learnt about Leave No Trace principles & Mountain Manners. Post Lunch they will learn camping skills.
